Leerdoelen Upon completion of the course the student is able to:
1. describe supply chain networks, including the roles of different stakeholders, distribution strategies and information systems in the network
2. perform input analyses and data-structuring techniques on data sets to be used in supply chain decision making
3. apply mathematical modelling techniques to formulate and solve specific supply chain network design problems
4. interpret the outcomes of quantitative models and scenario analyses in the light of qualitative discussions about supply chain network design alternatives
5. understand the opportunities and limitations of different information system architectures in the design and control of supply chain networks
6. recognize recent trends and innovations relevant for the design and control supply chain networks
7. communicate project results to an audience of supply chain and logistics managers
Omschrijving The aim of this course is to provide students with knowledge and skills to design supply chain networks. A supply chain network can be described as geographically dispersed facilities connected by transportation links. The course introduces students to typical decisions that arise in designing supply chain networks (e.g., locating facilities and transportation planning) and addresses techniques to tackle each of these decisions. The course also covers recent innovations in logistics and ICT that are relevant when designing supply chain networks.
